Hot Chocolate Gift Package



 This is what it looks like from the top when it's shut.
Hello everyone! Here is a Hot Chocolate Gift Package that I made. I thought these would be a fun gift to give to teachers, co-workers, etc.
I started by making the package folder. I did this by using an 8.5 X 10 inch piece of cardstock. I used my Martha Stewart Score Board and with the 10 inch side up, I scored it at 1/2, 4 3/4, 5 1/4, and 9 1/2. I then turned it with the 8.5 inch side up and scored it at 3 inches. Fold in the 1/2 and 9 1/2 inch sides and glue down. Then fold the 3 inch side up and glue to the sides and the middle. Now you have a folder. I cut the mouse from Birthday Bash and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed face stamp. I colored in the face and added Glossy Accents to the eyes and boots. For the scarf, I cut it by hand out of metalic paper and added a twine bow to her ear. The cup she's holding and the Cocoa sentiment are stamps from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun set. I colored the cup with Copics and added Glossy Accents to this as well. To finish the front I cut a mat and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder and added a 1 X 10 inch strip of paper around the center. I then added ribbon to the top of the strip to be able to tie it shut. To finish, I added a packet of Hot Chocolate, candy cane, and a bag of marshmallows to the inside pockets. I hope you all like my project and thanks for looking! Have a great day!
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Fantabulous Cricut- Present Time: Make a gift, gift packaging, or use a gift cut
2. My Craft Spot- Christmas Treats and Gift Packaging
